Abstract

We have here provided evidence that TNF mediated cytotoxicity is genetically, pharmacologically, and temporally distinct from the cytotoxicity mediated by TNF/CHX. Most studies on TNF cytotoxicity have been done by the combined use of TNF/CHX. The relevance of this approach to the physiological mechanisms underlying cytotoxicity by TNF alone is at present unclear. We have described a system in which overexpression of the p75-TNFR causes TNF-resistant cells to become TNF-sensitive. These cells are killed by TNF alone in a very short period of time and they are a useful system to study the mechanism of TNF-cytotoxicity.
